Today's Verse: Ezekiel 36:23

Thursday, July 2, 2015

I will show the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Sovereign Lord, when I show myself holy through you before their eyes.
— Ezekiel 36:23

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Have you ever wondered what would happen if all of God's people from every nation would humble themselves in repentance and ask God to reveal his holiness to the nations? I can't help but remember this promise the Lord made to his people through Solomon:
"[I]f my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14).

My Prayer...

Almighty and holy God, I am sorry and repent for my sins that have tarnished your witness through me to my friends. I am also sorry for the sins of my people and how we have turned from your way of holiness for our lives. Please forgive us and move mightily to reveal yourself in our day, in all your majesty and holiness. I pray in the name of Christ Jesus, the sacrifice for all our sins. Amen.
